Stupid F**king Bird
It's The Seagull -- on steroids. In this contemporary, irreverent adaptation of the Anton Chekhov classic, the Russian writer's characters still philosophize on love, art and the pursuit of happiness, but this time it's with mad humor and music. Helen Hayes and Barrymore Award-winning playwright Aaron Posner (The Chosen) turns the original play's famous subtext into scenes and songs, calling Stupid F**king Bird "a rough-and-tumble meta-theatrical mash-up." There's a famous actress whose son, an aspiring theater director, is desperate to make a name for himself on his own, and his muse, the lovely Nina, who falls for his mother's lover. Presented by San Francisco Playhouse, Stupid F**king Bird mixes ambition, booze and sex into a heady (and hilarious) brew.
